Default Black Mage Marines [WIP]

Okay... Building three armies at once goes slowly.

I might as well post what I have done so far.






It's a 3rd ed. Chaplain + 4 marines & 2 special characters from Battle for Macragge.

flesh wash on the skin, and be sure to do the edges of the armor. I swear that will make a world of difference.

Also, try to lay off the NMMs. I understand that their WiP but some grey instead of silver will make them look less tacky. Maybe for some variety, throw in some gold/yellow. Black mages have alot of yellow in their robes. If you have alot of trouble doing skin (I know I do) paint their faces black and have some bright yellow eyes like typical black mage fashion.

I'm intending the following colors to take effect:

Hands, feet, head: BM hat tan
Yellow eyes, and
Sarges and SCs get a BM hat

I'll keep on doing these guys and see where I go from here.

Sounds fine to me. Sorry if I was to harsh, its a good idea. Maybe you should broaden your scope and do a FF theme army (I'm smelling white mage apothecary......)

I think that some of the new dark angel minis would work darn good for your marines
